  2. No insurance shall be paid on any New York instrument payable for an amount in excess of one thousand dollars, other than those New York instruments issued for the purpose of paying utility bills.

  3. The maximum amount of insurance which any claimant shall be entitled to shall be determined as follows:

  a. If the claimant is a purchaser, the maximum amount of insurance which such purchaser shall be entitled to on all insured New York instruments purchased by said purchaser shall be five thousand dollars.

  b. If the claimant is a holder, the maximum amount of insurance which such holder shall be entitled to shall be the aggregate of the amounts which would have been due to the purchasers of the insured New York instruments held by the holder, had the instruments remained in the possession of the purchasers, rather than the holder.
